Owners' session looks short

Posted on: March 2, 2011 2:27 pm
Owners are arriving at a northern Virginia hotel to meet at 3 p.m. today, but they won't stay long. One NFL source I trust said owners have been told that the session will last this afternoon and that commissioner Roger Goodell has notified them that they are free to leave this evening.

That is not necessarily a sign that nothing will happen with the CBA, he said. It's just that owners have been told that this is a session where they will be brought up to speed on negotiations and what the implications of a work stoppage might be.

Originally, the meeting was listed as a March 2-3 session, but it appears the only meeting Thursday will be with mediation in downtown Washington, D.C.

With so many people going to strike against the NFL when a CBA has been reached I am going to watch the games and let every crusading person who thinks that they are going to send a message to the NFL do their thing. I love how some of you think you are a victum or being held hostage by a labor dispute (lol) and must suffer more to prove a point to people who will not listen to one sylable. The truth sux but so does that idea, on the bright side though you will be able to spend more time with your kids actualy doing something and taking your wife to that Sunday afternoon wine tasting event. Remember the Alamo!!!!!

Amen Huskey (btw Huskies Rule).  It would be awesome if every fan went on a 1 year hiatus.  That is what I am going to do next year.  I will not watch one game even the Super Bowl.  I am tired of the players and the owners thinking they are holding us hostage.  I say dont watch one game during the 2011/2012.

I'm so tired of people siding with the owners! Citing, "they own the business, they take all the risk, they need to make a profit". Where is it guaranteed that any business you own has to make a profit. They (the owners) chose to become owners of a franchise and the business of the NFL is more profitable than it's ever been.  Not all teams are losing money. It's only the poorly managed ones that are.  Owners not players drive up salaries, I've said this many times, no player can pay himself and no player can trade or draft himself.  Look at teams like the New England Patriots, how many bad contracts have they written in the last 10 years. How many players are left from their last Super Bowl winning team. The Green Bay Packers are not only the winningest team in Pro Football history they are also the most profitable team in NFL history and they don't even have a owner. They actually even contribute money to better the city of Green Bay. Is it just pure coincidence that they don't have an individual or group of egomaniacal owners who are constantly trying to out do each other with one bad contract after another. If some rich idiot can't control himself and offers you 300 million dollars over 10 years to take out the garbage would you not take it? This has nothing to with the players and has everything to do with poor management. No one is holding a gun to heads saying you must pay or die. How many times has New England traded out of the first round becouse they refuse to pay some untested rookie a ridiculous salary and how many times has Al Davis swooped in and thrown boat load of money at some trash that New England didn't want.  Players arn't the problem the owners are.

I hope you're right wingit. I remember the scab games of past years and the anger then. It all went away and the NFL is as popular as ever. At Cowboys Stadium it's $30 to park and a single beer is a small fortune. Bad press, class action lawsuits, dog killers snagging $20 million contracts because their pass rating is 100+, wife beating, sexual assaults, dope, reckless driving charges, 'Roids, court battles, CBA squabbles, or zillion dollar contracts to players who giggle when fined my yearly salary.

Time will tell I suppose, but fans seem to have short memories and deep pockets and on Sunday just say "Gimme" when it is slop time. I know I haven't missed a Cowboys game on TV since at least 1980 and those I recorded doing everything possible -- including covering my ears singing "lalalalalala" if scores were announced anywhere near me. I'm one of the addicted. Cry
